Reaching Digital Natives on Their Terms
Dessoff, Alan
District Administration, v46 n4 p36-38, 40, 42 Apr 2010
From replacing print textbooks with digital content created by teachers or gathered from outside sources to encouraging students to explore the world around them digitally, many districts are creating a new type of student-friendly teaching and learning environment that goes beyond just adding computers to classrooms. Through a wide range of curriculum-related activities inside and outside the classroom, they are bringing about what administrators and others involved see as a significant cultural shift in education. With technology playing such a prominent role in student lifestyles, district leaders are creating programs that include not only specific technological tools like interactive whiteboards and netbooks but also restructured curricula. This article discusses how schools should address the digital and learning divide and cites a few success stories. (Contains 15 online resources.)
